98. 美国国歌是什么?
星条旗之歌


Explanation:
    At the beginning of almost any football, basketball, or baseball game in the United States, people sing the country’s national anthem, or the song that officially represents the United States. This song is called The Star-Spangled Banner. When Americans sing it, they take off their hat, put their hand over their heart (or rest their right hand on the left side of their chest), and sing while looking at the U.S. flag.
    几乎所有在美国的比赛如足球、篮球或棒球开场之前都会听到人们唱响美国国歌,这是国家的象征。这首歌被称为星条旗之歌,当人们在演唱的时候,他们会摘帽,把右手置于左胸前,并全神贯注地注视着国旗。
    The phrase “Star-Spangled Banner” is another name for the U.S. flag. A banner is a long piece of fabric, like a flag. The U.S. flag is star-spangled because it is covered with stars.
    星光闪烁的旗帜也是美国国旗的另一个名字。旗帜就是一大片布组成的国旗。之所以说美国国旗星光闪烁是因为上面布满了星星。
    The melody (or the musical notes) come from an old British drinking song, or a song that men used to sing after they had drunk too much alcohol. The melody is very difficult to sing, because it has a wide range, meaning that some of the notes are very low and other notes are very high.
    国歌的旋律来自于英国一首古老的醉酒歌,每当人们喝的醉醺醺的时候就会哼起这首歌。由于音域很广使这首歌演唱起来有一定难度,有的音很高,有的音很低,差异极大。
    The lyrics (or the words that are sung in the song) were written by a man named Francis Scott Key. He wrote the lyrics while watching Fort McHenry, a military place in Maryland, being attacked by the British during the War of 1812.
    歌词是一位名叫弗朗西斯·斯科特·基的人写的。1812年当他在马里兰的军事要塞麦克亨利堡亲眼目睹英国人的进攻时,感触万千,写下了这首歌。
    In the lyrics, Francis Scott Key is asking whether people can still see the flag in the early morning after a long night of being attacked. It is a very patriotic song, or a song that makes people feel proud of their country.
    弗朗西斯·斯科特·基在歌词中写道,经过一夜的炮火攻击,人们是否还能在清晨的曙光中看到星条旗闪耀。这是首典型的爱国主义歌曲,让人们对自己的祖国肃然起敬。
    The flag that inspired the lyrics, or made Francis Scott Key want to write them, is called the Star-Spangled Banner and it has become an important artifact (or a historical object that has a lot of meaning). The flag has been restored (or cleaned and repaired or fixed) and is on display (or being shown to people) at the National Museum of American History in the nation’s capitol, Washington, DC.

    国旗触发了弗朗西斯·斯科特·基写下歌词的冲动,后来被命名为星条旗,并成为了重要的历史文物。国旗后来被重新修复过,现陈列在位于华盛顿特区的国家历史博物馆中。
